Episode #2 – The Quest for Racial Justice: Making This a Movement, Not a Moment

January 19, 2021 | 5:00PM – 6:30PM EST

Racism and the systemic inequities it breeds took center stage last year, as the world watched the murder of George Floyd during the worst healthcare crisis of our generation. We have the opportunity to address last year’s tragic events by being more intentional in our actions and the causes we support. Please join us in having a dialogue with organizations on the front line of sustaining what must become a movement, so that last year’s events aren’t simply viewed as just another moment in time.

See below for details and event registration.

In Episode #1: Action Against Hunger, we heard from Anne Hayes (Excecutive Director, The Food Project), Aidan Reilly (Co-Founder, The FarmLink Project), and Ajay Relan (Founder,#HashtagLunchbag). The panelists discussed their efforts to combat hunger, which is a major public health concern in the United States impacting more than 50 million people. The panelists shared their journey and discussed how they are making a difference in the fight against food insecurity.
